from the above site:
" The missing sound is the dynamics of being up close to the stage while the band performed. Up front, dead center in the first fifteen rows is where "the sound" was ideal. The tapers knew this was the spot. They braved security and the bands' roadies to make these tapes. This project has been started to preserve, archive and distribute these rare recordings. This project is for the fans — who want to experience recordings made in the "Mouth of the Beast"."

So, when the tapers are up front (in the MotB), they record sounds from the stage as well as from the sound system. Un-amplifed sounds such as the drums/cymbals & un-amp-mic'd sounds like from many of the electric instruments are picked up (i.e., louder) as well. This might give a better stereo 'soundscape.'

I love 'em...
